I want to thank the Wurundjeri traditional owners and Stonnington council for the healing ceremony that they put on on 26 January this year. It was an insightful, warm ceremony. I was so pleased that children, including my own, were able to take part. Apparently Pauline Hanson has a problem with this. Well, let me tell you, if Pauline Hanson has a problem with it, you know you are doing something right. I want to thank the traditional owners. I want to thank Stonnington council for putting on that healing ceremony, and I look forward to attending a similar event next year.
